Polished Brass (PB)

Using the highest quality brass available we forge, stamp and cost our own products. which are then polished and lacquered. One of the beautiful characteristics of brass is the way it ages and tarnishes over time is there anything more welcoming than a naturally worn old brass handle?

To speed up the ageing process, remove the lacquer with point stripper and polishing.

Antique Copper (AC)

This distinctive finish is achieved by firstly copper plating and antiquing a brass product. Before setting, the antique finish is carefully rubbed back by hand to lighten the colour and reveal copper highlights, which simulates natural wear Over time, the clear lacquer coating and antique finish will continue to thin in places due to natural use, revealing more copper highlighting. This copper too will age, creating a true living finish that looks good at all stages of is life

Antique Brass (AB)
